Who do you really trust? Do you feel better when you have people you can trust? Do you notice people that have confidence in everyone are always so happy and free? It doesn’t natter that you think they’re naive.
Do you have people or companies that provide service to you that you trust? I have a few people I go to that I trust and it gives me some freedom. I go to a tire place that I also have change my oil, and I go to a chiropractor that has my trust. I’m not foolish, and yes, I pay them, sometimes quite a bit, but I know what I’m getting and I don’t question the charges.
What does it take to build that trust and create a sense of freedom from the stress of spending? How do I know they’re being honest if I don’t know their job? If they’re looking out for you, you’ll know. This goes exactly the same way with a coach, or trainer. My tire guy tells me when I still have life on my tires, and how many miles. He rotates my tires, the ones I bought from him, for free. If I get a nail or something in there, he fixes it at no charge. When it comes ro my oil and brakes, he gives me the option of buying my own parts. This lets me know he’s not looking to get an extra fee by over-charging for parts. And he doesn’t lie to me about time. I give him my keys and he outs me in line. He doesn’t let his guys mill about and trusts his guys to get the work done.
My chiropractor shows me exercises to do at home so that I never have to see him. He also charges the same price, whether he does extra work on me or the same routine alignment that I initially went in for. He knows me, knows what I do, and calls me out when he sees that I’m not doing what I should be.
I also have a mechanic that I go to that I know only stays in business if he continues to work on vehicles. I don’t trust him as much to look out for my best interest and it makes ne think twice. This creates hesitation in accepting the things he tells me and settles a little bit of stress on my plate.
You should be able to trust your coach to be doing right by you and your best interest. Many people I talk to may not like the way I tell them things, but I only care that they are doing the work that will serve their best interest in the end. I don’t want to be a lifetime coach. I will, without hesitation, but the goal in coaching is to give you the knowledge to be successful on your own, not be dependent on your coach. Everything I tell you will be honest and from the heart. It will be for you to accept responsibility and understand what happens in each scenario you create.
When you’re happy, you’re successful. Having less stress, trusting more, creates happiness. The more you don’t worry gives you more opportunities to smile and accept life. This leads to more success.
